PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Furkan Korkmaz is officially a Philadelphia 76er.

Just a few days after Korkmaz’s agent tweeted, “76ers fans have more reason to drink Turkish beer now,” in Turkish, his client has officially signed with the 76ers.

The 19-year-old guard tweeted this on Tuesday evening.

Korkmaz, 6’7″, was Philadelphia’s No. 26 overall pick in 2016. He reportedly paid $1.3 million to join the Sixers.

Korkmaz will play in Wednesday night’s summer league game:
